One of the coolest things to do in New York to celebrate Halloween is to visit the Great Jack O’ Lantern Blaze located at 525 S Riverside Ave, Croton-On-Hudson, NY. Croton-On-Hudson is located under an hour train ride from Grand Central Terminal.

The blaze is a walk-through experience, where you will see thousands of hand-carved pumpkins. It is not a free activity, the price for adults is $20 and it is highly recommended that you purchase your tickets in advance, since they often sell out very quickly.
